Three strong guys boarded a groaning airplane (Let's get'this baby off the ground) on Friday, Sept. 25, for a trip from Baltimore to the heart of rock and roll in Cleveland for the' USA Power Lifting Bench Press Nationals. Competitors Bob Moore and Jeff Plummer were joined by comrade, confidante and consul- tant Johnny Morris of The Firm Health Club for a weekend of fun, which also included visits to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, the new Cleveland Browns' under- construction .stadium and the Na- tional Football League Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio. Big Bob Moore of Rehoboth, 52 years old, who was only three Lampost buffets away from mak- ing weight at 242 pounds, had to compete in the much heavier 275 pound class. "I knew I was, at best, second when I walked in the door and saw a guy open at 500 pounds," Moore said. "I've been in better shape, but the Weekend shaped up like lots of fun with good friends and better meals." Moore is no slouch at the Superfresh meat counter or at benching big amounts of weights and easily placed second in the nation with a lift of 440 pounds. 'That's as good as Bob was go- " , 92- CIOPE G, Friday, 0ctoiir 9;- October 1'5, 1998 . -- .. , .- . - ..

If Bob had made weight he would be national champion." Plummer stays fit, weighing just under 220 pounds, but a long sum- mer season managing the family business at the Big Oaks takes away from Plummer's training time. "I enjoy the competition b.ut I don't start training seriously un- til after the summer season," he- said. The USA and International Power Lifting Associations have merged and the rules and close- ness of judging have become very strict. False grips, uneven exten- sions and not pausing the weight on the chest all result in a red light or nonlift. There were more miss- es than good lifts during the com- petition. "A guy was red-lighted after benching 650 pounds and he asked what he did wrong and was told he adjusted his belt (a fat-boy trick usually reserved for attract- ing babes) while on the Competi- tive platform before laying down on the bench. The rule is no ad- justing equipment once you're on the platform. Some of those big guys look scary when they get mad," Morris said. James Henderson, 6' 7" and One breathtaking sight was 450pounds, just missed a 710- James Henderson, a 6 foot 7 inch, pound lift. Hobies raise $800 for Special Olympics The Hobie 16 North American Continental Championships sailed into Dewey Beach last week, raising $800 to send two local cat sailors, Reggie Miller and Carol Bak, to the 1999 Spe- cial Olympics World Games, and culminating in an awards banquet at the Crabber's Cove on Friday, Oct. 2. Co-hosted by Rehoboth Bay Sailing Association (RBSA) and local Hobie Cat Fleet 106, more than 65 world class Hobie teams from all over North America competed in more than 15 races, with winds so high On the afternoon of Thursday, Oct. 1, that the remainder of that day's races were canceled. The opposite proved true on Friday, when the lack of wind postponed races until later in the day. The winners, left, skipper Wally Myers, left, and crew Mark Santorelli of Marmora, N.J., raise their arms in victory. Coming in second were skipper Bob O'Connor and Cathy Ward of Rochester, N.Y., while third place went to skipper Cliff McCarty and Stephanie Megin of DanbUry, Conn. RBSA fielded only one team inthe competi- tion, Mark and John Stephen, although dozens of members organized and oversaw the event.

Winning 50-50 balls and getting the hard tackles, Smyrna was able to convert many of these chances into offensive scoring opportunities. Two of the goals were scored in the first half. The first was a comer kick that Smyrna was able to place a head Oct. 3, in Dover. The effort was the second straight shutout for the Waves, who blanked Seaford 4-0 on to place into the back of the net. The second came after one Smyrna player dribbled past a whole slew of defenders to strike the bail into the back comer. Coming into the second half with a second wind, Cape tried to establish some rhythm to become 450 behemoth that just missed a legal lift of 710 pounds although no one admitted to turning on the red light. "You have to train smart, avoid injury and work at the lifts you're not so good at to get better in the bench," Plummer said. Most lifters use a little creatin, but An- drostein, popularized by Mark McQuire, is banned by the USA and IPF and even the IOC. It's a steroid plain and simple." The power lifters will rturn to their respective regimens knowing that it's the process of being fit every day that outweighs a single day's competition. See you at the buffet table, boys! Strong defensive efforts from Rebecca Jones, Heather Seward, Khara Conlon and Lauren Folke held Dover to no shots during the game. This weekend, Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 10-11, the Waves will play in the huge central Delaware Columbus Day Soccer Tournament in Dover. Teams such as the Salisbury Tidal Force, Ft.
